Introduction to Solstice DiskSuite Software

Solstice DiskSuite software, like VxVM, is a logical volume manager for platforms running the Solaris Operating Environment (OE). Solstice DiskSuite software ships ready-to-use with current versions of Solaris. Because of its inclusion with the operating system (OS) and the relative ease with which it handles boot disks, Solstice DiskSuite software is used to manage boot disks on a wide variety of Sun platforms. Using Solstice DiskSuite software, you can easily create data layouts with higher performance and availability than are provided by the OS alone. For instance, mirroring the boot disk with Solstice DiskSuite software allows the system to run even if the boot disk fails.
